A little less than a week since we got the joyful news that one of our favorite actresses had given birth to her second child, we are finally getting all the details. And along with the news come a series of absolutely adorable photos that show just how happy the new mommy is.
On October 25th, "Lizzie McGuire” star Hilary Duff gave birth to a beautiful baby girl at her Los Angeles home. The new little bundle of joy joins big brother, six-year-old Luca who is more than a little happy to have a little sis.
The news of the impending arrival reached Duff’s social media followers back on June 8th when the “Cheaper By The Dozen” star posted a pic of her with Matthew Koma, the baby's father. The two were hugging in a sweet embrace, and the mama-to-be’s baby bump was on full display.
“Guess what guys! @matthewkoma and I made a little princess of our own and we couldn’t be more excited!!!!!!🤰🏼👶🏼🎀”
Matthew also posted the same pic on his Insta page, echoing the excitement Hilary conveyed:
“We made a baby girl! She will be as beautiful and sweet as her mother... @hilaryduff another incredible chapter begins.”
Duff kept her social media fans updated on all the ups and downs of her pregnancy, and even suggested that she was tired of waiting for her little one’s arrival.
Then, the day arrived, and in an uncomplicated home birth, Banks Violet Bair made a joyful appearance. And from the look of the darling photos, she is just as sweet and beautiful as her mama! (Just as Matthew had predicted)
"Banks Violet Bair❤️ this little bit has fully stolen our hearts! She joined our world at home on Thursday afternoon and is absolute magic ✨"
Mother and daughter are doing well, and Hilary even felt good enough to snap a few selfies with her new daughter. Just look at the smile on Mama's face!
And Daddy is head-over-heels in love with his precious daughter, as well. The photo, below, shows Matthew lovingly cradling his newborn daughter in his arms.
Below, we see the new Mama and her little girl out for a stroll less than a week after her arrival!
Please join us in congratulating the new family of four and sending prayers for an easy transition due to the miracle of Banks Violet Bair's arrival. Let's end with an adorable clip of the newborn interacting with the camera in a most precious way!
She's really got the hang of that pacifier, doesn't she?
